  • Hi friends,


    Back with a new solo for our Original Fire (band name) original (as in we wrote it) tune "Egypt" (working title). Just finished composing it last week:



    Profile as (as usual) the free Guidorist Friedman PT 808 profile (love it) with my own effects.

    Changed the title of the thread from “Musicmad's shenanigans - songs and solos” to “Musicmad's shenanigans - songs and solos - New Original Solo up!”.
  • Hi friends,


    Recorded this Nuno classic yesterday:



    Profile is the trusty Guidorist pink taco 808

  • Feeeedt, mand! Seems like our tastes are quite alike, haha, what with Marty Friedman and now Nuno ^^:thumbup:

    What's not to like :).


    Thanks for the comments all.

  • Hi friends,


    Did a rehearsal recording (plus the occasional smoke :)) the other day as a video for our Drones of Prey single:



    Take a look if you care - would love some feedback.


    Also please subscribe to my channel and leave a comment. Can we get to 50 subs? :D

  • Very-entertaining, Nikolaj; well done, mate. 8):thumbup:


    Technical question:

    After the tapping sequence at the start of the lead break, it sounds like you used mini-dives from 3:18->3:20 but there's no whammy bar on the geetar.


    Did you slide those notes? If so, my ears are playing tricks on me. :D

  • Very cool, thanks for sharing. Great synchronisation of video footage and actual playing. Good stuff, nice song and well done :thumbup:8)


    May I ask how many guitar tracks are on the audio of this and with which profiles?

    Thanks for the kind words. For the rhythm parts it's two panned (almost) left/right. Solo's just one. I don't remember which profiles - just checked the Cubase project and I didn't yet get into the habit of noting it down. I suspect it's Guidorist JVM410 for rhythm and a boosted 808 Pink Taco for leads. Needed the lead to have over the top sustain for this kind of attitude.

  • Thanks buddy :). The solo is played on my 80's Kramer but the Floyd has been blocked for a few decades (might change that soon btw.). These are slides! Got my inspiration for these "slide into the same note from below" slides from Rick Graham. Great way to change position as well.

  • Great playing, sounds monstrous!


    Hi Nicolaj,

    great playing man!

    Thanks both - Please like and subscribe :) (as they say in YouTube land). But perhaps leave that notification bell alone. Who needs more notifications these days.
